in iraq, afghanistan as well. applaud him for his service. you wrote a letter to senator dianne feinstein, who has put up legislation for a so-called assault weapons ban. you said, i'm not your subject. i'm the man who keeps you free. i'm not the servient, i'm the person who you serve. i'm not your peasant, i'm the flesh and flood of america. to someone who says, the counter argument, why do you need an ar-15, why do you need a semiautomatic so-called assault rifle? >> the ar-15, first off, is a very urg naergonomical platform. for people who haven't been in combat, it's something i experienced in my first marine corps. you brain releases chemicals in your body. you lose motor control function, and you shake, and you miss. that happens. now, i helped a 70-year-old man sight his ar-15. i asked him why he had it, it was for self defense. because he's gnaw able to control a 12-gauge shotgun. she would have been better able to engage both of those threats with an ar-15. >> okay, i want to bring in our senior legal analyst, jeffrey toobin. he's on the other side of the aisle. the second amendm
the bill that senator feinstein just recently introduced grandfathers in all the existing assault type of weapons so it will be a while before you see any impact. a majority of homicides that we have at least here in philadelphia and from chiefs around the country that i've spoken to, predominantly handguns, semiautomatic handguns, nine millimetre being the one that we recover most often. so there has to be a combination of things. there is no one thing that can be done that's going to have an impact. the bottom line is we need decent laws, reasonable laws in place, maybe inconvenient to some folks that have to, you know, go through background checks even with private sales, but it's something that we have to do to make sure that the guns are not falling into the wrong hands. reporting a gun lost or stolen, to me, another reasonable thing that i believe would definitely help us in law enforcement. and then really going after the people that are out here committing crimes, using a handgun, using assault weapons. it doesn't matter what they use. once they're caught and convicted they nee
led by diane feinstein wanted to know if he agreed the use of waterboarding. he previously said he believed those techniques led to getting information that saved lives. but now he said he opposes it. >> it never should have been employed. >> reporter: he defends the use of drones to attack terror suspects. he said they are uses against threats and not as pay back. democrats cost that he will be confirmed. from could be a vote after that. reporting live in washington. >> the president meanwhile is among those scheduled to speak at the farewell ceremony later today. the 74-year-old will be honored for his years of public service. he said he is looking forward to returning to private life on his family's wall nut ranch. the president nominated chuck hagle to replace him but that nomination hasn't been voted on by the senate. >> going back to the continuing coverage of the search for accused gunman christopher dorner. investigators are going over the manifesto he posted on his facebook page. he addressed to america and he called it last resort. he said that he doesn't fear death, b
. they felt like they have been stonewalling. one scene i thought was memorable, when dianne feinstein took after him for not allowing senate staff access to a lot of this information really was a window on how washington works that, you know, people think that senators sort of pore over a lot of these and study them. their staffs brief them and tell them what's going on. the suggestion staff can't have access is debilitating as we saw yesterday. >> it was interesting that brennan said that he, when waterboarding came on, when he was at the cia that he was not in a position to try to stop it, but that he had expressed his reservations about it, his opposition to it and that he would never happen under his watch under director of cia. did that come across as auth authentic? a little bit different from waterboarding. something president obama ostensibly put a stop to said we don't water board. we don't torture. so the belief is i guess, it goes on some of these cia black sites that may or may not exist officially. >> so on the drones, i mean when the flap started
